Hello Fashion Diggers...
The look is MOD and it was all over the
Fall runways! From Space-Age looks at Marc Jacobs to Pop-Art prints at Celine
and color-block at Kenneth Cole, the Mod influence on Fall Fashion Trends is
hard to miss. For original, authentic MOD clothes and accessories check out our
current faves available on the site:
Chic has high-end MOD fashion finds such as a leopard print wool knit
mini-dress with stand collar, a 60s Pierre Cardin modernist design necklace, a
micro-mini double-knit wool dress trimmed with contrasting color on the collar
and hem, a 60s velveteen tunic top in a Pucci inspired print and a sexy vinyl
mini-hip hugger skirt with matching belt....the Hanea Mori men's MOD body shirt
with oversized collar is perfect for the MOD male!

Speaking of MOD inspiration,
Lois from Theze and
Thoze designs her own great MOD inspired dresses... like the long-sleeved
fitted mini-dresses in shimmery nylon Lycra or the bell-sleeved stretch velvet
minis in a "fit & flair" MOD style. All great, easy looks for
fall-- just add opaque tights and boots and go! And don't forget to add the
finishing touch to your MOD outfit with a pair of reproduction gogo boots from
Vintage...they come in black or white patent leather with 2.5" heels.
Janet, My roommate and I work at a small very trendy retro bar. The basic bar
consists of disco lights with black leather couches and lime green couches. My
question is this, our uniforms are all black tops, mini skirts and gogo boots.
Which we hate!!!! Not only are the boots extremely hard to work in, but the
sexual harassment level is out of control. We have finally convinced the owner
to a uniform change that everyone can agree on. But we need ideas. The owner
wants tight, revealing uniforms, we want practical but flattering uniforms. Any
